Tanks a lot

tank reflectionThis is the view looking down into our 1000 gallon tank we use for irrigation and other water related chores.

It's up on a hill so gravity can help the water along its path to our sink and various parts of the garden.

This addition was a huge improvement over our previous set up which used a 50 gallon barrel elevated in the air by 10 feet. We found our tank on Craigslist for 300 dollars, but they usually cost twice that if you need to buy a new one.
